Nice! Glad your prize package arrived safe and sound! Our donors were quite generous (particularly HealthForce Nutritionals)!

Hope you feel better soon. :)

Thanks Rob and Karen, for the get will wishes. Thanks you also very much again for the prize package, I feel super double thankful for everything!

John you are right, as usual. These folks are pretty great. :D

2/24
I think I'm over the hump of this stomach thingy.

Yesterday after a discussion with my coachy team mate who talked me down from trying to train through it, i just rode my bike to and from work, slow slow sloooooooooooow slow. Which was against advice. But whatever. Came home, ate a probar out of my prize package, kept it down, and passed straight out for the night.

Gonna try and train a little today, will prob end up taking it easy, but I will try to climb at least a little. Taking the black bike out for the first time this season. Sun's out, pavement's dry, and I am psyched!

Thanks Rob! All better now! It was a very fun weekend

Friday I did do a little climbing, but it started to hail so I came back so I didn't make my sick worse. Saturday I went out to do a bit of gentle riding and some openers, but I got hailed on again, so I came back frozen but I did get a little work done in the ~25 miles I did get to ride. Sunday's race went well all things considered, it ended up being an exercise in psychological determination with all the stuff that went wonky that morning. I didn't even get to warm up before the race!

saturday night food:
tofu/kale/carrots/yeast cookie a little fruit/yogurt

sunday morning food:
1/4 cup dry oatmeal w hemp and raisins
1/4 cup dry oatmeal w/ raisins, shot of chocolate gel

aha! squatting, i see! very nice.

yes, john, i'll take it easy for sure! not going for upper body muscles at this point, mostly core strength, but it's nice to know i could get past a sticking point i've had for a long time!

well i learned a lot this week. my main lesson:

a rest week is supposed to be an actual week of rest, not an excuse to work hard in different ways.

i learned that the hard way. thursday i went for a short 2 mile run, and by the end of it, was really really feeling it in my quads, which were still sore from tuesday's workout. by the time thursday night rolled around, i could barely sit. went for a consult with coachiepoo on friday and caught shit for it but i didn;t need to. i already learned my lesson. so i will take this next week relatively easy i also am probably done with serious weight training legs for now. only very light and plyo if i can manage it. i also need a rest day, because the bike fit i had yesterday saw me pedaling a fair bit, not for long though, but my quads are still sore, so i do need some recovery time.

thursday:
2 mile run
commute

friday:
random trainer stuff

saturday:
2 hour ride
